Brake Light Issues

DIYers I'm having an issue regarding my brake lights. I've checked the fuses B7 and replaced the switch behind the brake pedal, yet my rear brake lights are still not working. Can anybody provide me any guidance on where to check next.

All 3 not working (both sides and the 3rd high mount light)?

Have you checked your side marker lights? Are one of those burnt out?

My left brake light (just the brake light) wasn't working. Changed fuses... tested no fewer than 8 bulbs... zero. Noticed the left side marker light was out... replaced it... voila. Don't know if it'll apply to your circumstances... but worth a shot.
